Townsend and Townsend and Crew partner Kenneth E. Jenkins has been elected vice president of the San Diego Intellectual Property Law Association (SDIPLA).
Jenkins, a life sciences patent prosecution and litigation partner, has served as a board member of SDIPLA the past two years.
"San Diego is a major technology center in the U.S.," Jenkins said. "This area is particularly important as an incubator of new ideas and technologies being developed by both academic institutions and technology based companies. The SDIPLA will continue to play a valuable role in helping San Diego's IP law community protect the high value intellectual property generated in this region."
One of Jenkins' priorities as vice president will be to continue to increase the organization's membership ranks.
SDIPLA is among the largest intellectual property bar organizations in the country, with close to 500 members, and has been recognized for the exceptional quality of the programming it offers its members.
